Accurately determining the number of Auger electrons per nuclear decay for medical isotopes
Auger-emitting radionuclides have great potential in cancer treatment as low-energy Auger electrons (below 5 keV) deposit a high radiation dose over a very short distance. Auger-based therapy is attractive as, in contrast to alpha and beta particles, the affected volume around the decaying radionuclides is much smaller than the volume of a cell. Moreover, low-energy electrons (3-20 eV) have been shown to be very effective in causing DNA cleavage. In this study, a monolayer of 125I was...[Show more]
